OK, short and sweet, what is the point of loading plated bullets? Of course lead is the best buy in bullets and even better if you cast them yourself. But, some indoor ranges do not allow lead bullets, so it's jacketed or plated. What I can't get my head around is, why plated? To be more specific, why would I pay more $$ for plated when I can purchase real jacketed bullets for equal or less $$? They seem like a solution to a nonexistent problem. Wanna kill these ads?
